NEW YORK (AP) — A former federal railroad official who served in President Obama’s administration has been appointed to lead New York City’s beleaguered transit agency and it’s nearly 50,000 employees. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority appointed Sarah E. Feinberg as interim president of the transit system on Tuesday. Feinberg, who currently is the MTA Transit committee chair, will begin her new role March 9. She takes over the transit system following the resignation of Andy Byford, a British executive with experience in transit systems all over the world. He announced his resignation in January. The MTA will conduct a search for a permanent replacement.
